The Cohesion is a shoe aimed at younger kids. It offers good value because it works for running while still being tough enough for more general wear. Little kids will run, though a shoe may be optional, which makes these a good option when the surfaces are not conducive to bare tootsies.

The profile is clearly for running with its tapered toe rolling the foot to toe-off. The midsole is a good measure of lightweight EVA that is bouncy enough for quickness and protection. The colors are appealing to kids and they’ll find them tough, as well as fun to run in.

Testers: “They feel great. They are really fast and really colorful."
